SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO - News) today announced it has completed its acquisition of privately-held BNI Video. Headquartered in Boxborough, Mass., BNI Video supplies service providers with two major video products that offer video back-office and content delivery network (CDN) analytic capabilities.
The acquisition advances the capabilities of Cisco's Videoscape TV platform, which allows service providers to deliver compelling video experiences to any device over any Internet Protocol (IP) network. BNI Video's technology also helps Cisco's service provider customers reduce their operational costs and complexity, while expanding monetization opportunities.
With the close of the acquisition, BNI Video employees join Cisco's Service Provider Video Technology Group.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
